Scripture tells us to come before Him... to kneel before His throne and declare that He is God.
But I am wretched, a fractured human torn into a thousands pieces. And those pieces are distracting. I want to be put back together... but first I have to let go.
Which means I have to go back.... and think of those regrets, of those unwise choices.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
We must let it be true in us.... for us.
Scripture also tells us that we can never flee from His presence.
A comforting... yet daunting truth.
It means that He is there in those hiding places. The dark ones we sneak off to when we think no one is watching. Those places we go to feed..... pacify our addictions and pains.
He is there... always there.... always watching.
He says to us...
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
When we take on His yoke, we leave behind
our worriesall our doubts
concerns about the future
the distress we carry within
the things that cause us pain
and everything that keeps us up at night
Then we find that His yoke is
Then I can be still.
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God."
